Klarna stand at the crossroads of shopping and banking: a place where detailed insights and first-class predictive models are essential in building products that customers love.

That’s where Data Science delivers. While historically we focused on making credit and fraud models for risk management, we have now expanded into solving new and exciting problems - automated product recommendations, growth hacking, cybersecurity, lead-gen for marketing and sales, product optimization, and much much more. Today, we’re calling for a full-stack Data Scientist who want to change the world, to join us on our journey. Step off the straight line, and apply to Klarna.
